Mattel delays filing of 2023 annual report

Comic-Con International, in San Diego, California

(Reuters) -Toymaker Mattel said on Thursday it was unable to file its 2023 annual report within the prescribed time after it identified certain deficiencies, which represented "material weakness" in its internal control over financial reporting.

The deficiencies were related to the information technology controls and are not expected to materially impact the financial information to be reported in the 2023 annual report, it added.

Mattel's shares were down about 3% in extended trading.

The company said it was working to file the annual report "no later" than March 15.

Mattel reported its fourth-quarter and full-year 2023 financial results on Feb. 7.
